Not for me

I never lost any weight, I had these for a few months and nothing not 1kg off. I started with 2 a day a was hungry still, no sugar cravings but by dinner time I was eating a bigger meal cause I was so hungry. I tried adding berries and different fruit but still didn't work. I wasn't very big to start with but found I need to try something else, I reduce my current weight. Show details

Tasty

I love the coffee one too & also have a hard time sourcing it on the Gold Coast. The only one I don’t really like is the strawberry flavour. My preference is coffee, vanilla then chocolate, I sometimes add banana to the vanilla or chocolate. For me the main downfall is the sugar content but I find they do work as a meal replacement & are inexpensive. Show details

Awesome product

I started using these shakes after hearing about Jackie’s story. I’ve tried many shakes and Aldi’s tick all boxes on price, taste and satiety. They don’t upset my stomach like other whey based ones do, nor do they have artificial sweetners. They keep me full, I have energy and feel better mentally. I’m not concerned with the higher carb load as it’s fructose. The body processes fructose differently. I’ve bought a portable ninja so can have a creamy shake when I’m on the road working. Seeing results 7.8kg down since 1 March. Reached first target of 54kg. 4kg to go. It’s a huge thumbs up for me. Thankyou Aldi. Show details

A little too sweet

I had put on around 5kilos after Cancer treatment & for over 4years have been battling to get the weight off, finally I tried the Aldi shakes chocolate & strawberry & they have started to work losing 1kilo in the first week my only problem is I find them very sweet is there anyway of decreasing the sweetness.

No more migraines!

Absolutely LOVE these shakes especially the chocolate flavour. I've found that not only am I less hungry, I don't get migraines anymore! I'm mentally sharp all throughout the work day at the office since I've drank this shake for breakfast & dinner... Highly Recommend! Show details

Taste is great but very high in carbs

I have only had one so far and I think the taste is much better than the [Brand Removed]
and the [Brand Removed]
.
However I was a bit concerned about weight loss when the Aldi is very high in carbs and sugar and lower in protein than the others.
Eg Aldi Protein 18.2 g Bondi 30g Cole’s 30.2 g
Aldi Carbs 25.2 g Bondi 2.6 g Coles 2.4
Aldi Sugars 23.4 Bondi less than 0.1 Coles 1.7
Because I don’t eat fast food or many sweets and eat a whole food diet but regardless cannot shift 5 to 6 kilos whenever I do I want to reduce carbs and increase protein. I would love to stick with Aldi as they are so delicious but I think the sugar and carbs may delay my weight loss progress.
I would value any other opinions on this. Show details

My favourite chocolate meal replacement shake

I have tried a variety of brands of meal replacements but can't go past the Aldi brand for the chocolate and vanilla.

They shake well (I don't get lumps like I do with some other brands) and they are tasty and filling. I also like the fact that this shake is rich in calcium (one shake contains 50% of recommended daily requirements for calcium). And this is important for someone on the wrong side of menopause.

It is a shame our local Aldi's seems to rarely have any flavours on the shelf except for coffee. And that is the downside with Aldi - supply is not as reliable as it is with other brands. Show details

i enjoy this product, and it keeps me full until afternoon

i really like these shakes. i have one in the morning and it keeps me full until afternoon. i only like the coffee, and i feel the company needs to increase the amount of this flavour as there is always a shortage of this flavour. the other flavours are not as popular in my opinion. i have tried all the flavours and only enjoy the coffee. Show details

COFFEE flavour is rarely available

Coffee flavour is my choice however I can rarely get them from my local store. Have tried other stores & they are sold out too.
Very frustrated thus the 1 star review.
The coffee flavour is in a box of 18 with half chocolate (9 coffee & 9 chocolate). New stock came in and out of around 8 coffee/chocolate boxes there were only 4 sachets of coffee left.
Staff said there is nothing that they can do as Aldi will not restock until all the chocolate are sold.
Hopefully I'll find out who the manufacturer is and see if it is sold under a different brand name.

Love the coffee shake

Really enjoy the taste of these shakes. The only problem is trying to get them, they come in a mixed box with chocolate and staff can't reorder until chocolate has gone. Show details

Delicious

I love that these have no disgusting artificial sweeteners. They use skim milk powder, which doesn't upset my stomach like the whey protein. If you make it with milk it tastes like a McDonalds strawberry thickshake.

So easy. Amazed at the results

Started using the slim & trim shakes 6 weeks ago mainly for breakfast about 5 out of 7 days a week. Mixing half the water quantity with the powder until smooth paste then adding the rest of the water for no lumps. I’ve lost 5kg ! Am now 77kg and on my way to losing another 5kg which will be my ideal weight. Very happy with this product. Love the chocolate one too. Show details

No idea. Maybe that's a good question to ask ALDI.

The ALDI Essential Health Slim & Trim is a meal replacement shake. There’s no suggested meal plan by ALDI, so it's a great option if you’re looking for a shake that you can tailor to your own needs.

When putting together your meal plan, keep in mind that the ALDI shakes are high in sugar, so try to balance your shake with healthy snacks throughout the day. This meal replacement shake is popular and many have said that they are not able to purchase this product in bulk because it flies off the shelf so quickly. Packed into individual sachets, which are often on sale for under $2, the shake is available in a variety of flavours, such as coffee, strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate.

What reviewers liked about ALDI Essential Health Slim & Trim

  • In terms of taste and texture, the ALDI shake seemed to be a similar quality to other more expensive weight loss drinks.
  • Many reviewers have said that the ALDI shake is helping them lose weight and that they see the results that they are looking for.
  • The affordable price of $2 a sachet was a recurring point of praise for reviewers, who saved money by using the ALDI shakes instead of buying other foods.
